HIC 09 – Australia’s Peak E-Health Conference – Alert Number 1

The HIC 09 Conference is being held in Canberra between August 19 and 21, 2009.

The conference web site is found here:


In a series of posts over the next two weeks I want to highlight some of the goodies on offer, and encourage you to attend if you possibly can.

All the details and registration is available on the link above.

Alert 1.

The $60 million Funding Opportunity

Senator Conroy's Digital Region Initiative

With submissions to Senator Conroy's $60 million Digital Regions Initiative due later this year, HIC'09 will be an ideal opportunity to hear Senator Conroy speak on health and communications, one of the program's key funding areas.

For those who have not heard of the program, the Digital Regions Initiative will deliver innovative and sustainable projects that:

  • boost innovation in healthcare by enabling services such as remote consultation, diagnosis and treatment in areas where there are specialist skills shortages
  • increase the use of digital technologies to improve emergency and disaster response both within and across state and territory borders, and
  • improve and extend digital education services so that regional, rural and remote communities have the same access to educational opportunities as other Australians.

Come along to HIC'09, hear about the technology and real world application opportunities that will underpin programs such as this. HIC'09 is the place to learn and network, to establish how best to engage with this and other government programs.

HIC'09 is capturing the imagination of e-health leaders and influencers from all over Australia, covering issues from national broadband through bioinformatics to electronic health records, it addresses the topics that are critical to our nation's e-health. The conferences merges the latest research with its practical application.

Be there or be square!
